Flyers Try to Stay Hot With Game Against Best Team in West

Flyers going for fifth straight victory today

The Flyers will host an early afternoon game against the Blues on Saturday in South Philadelphia. The Wells Fargo Center will feel like a playoff game when the puck drops against the Blues. Since the Flyers have won four straight, they have found themselves leapfrogging teams in the Eastern Conference. They are within shouting distance of the third spot in the standings, just four points back, and could find themselves there by season's end.

Blues look to rebound following shutout loss

The Blues suffered their first loss this month when Chicago dropped them 4-0 on Wednesday. It was the first loss for goalie Ryan Miller since being traded to St. Louis from Buffalo. He had gone 7-0-1 with a GAA of 1.61 prior to the loss to the Blackhawks. With 101 points on the season, the Blues are in line for the top spot in the Western Conference and are fighting for the President's Trophy. Head coach Ken Hitchcock returns to Philadelphia, where he coached for three-plus seasons.

The oddsmakers from TopBet.eu have the Blues as road chalk in this NHL contest against the Flyers, but we just do not see Philly dropping a game at home today. That is why we are dropping 10 percent of our bankroll on the Flyers with the UNDER 5.5 total goals scored at -130 on Saturday afternoon.
